Nate Dogg, Motherf*ckers!

I got an urgent call from Cole that summayall are desperate for pet pictures. Accordingly, Nate Dogg is in the house, for your viewing enjoyment:

He burrowed under the cushion of his, searching desperately for jerky treats and other assorted whatnots.  He then decided he should just sleep there.

You’re welcome.

Oh, and Open Thread.

    We’re not up for “some pet pictures”. We’re up for some Tunch, Lily, and Rosie pictures. Max wouldn’t hurt, either. We demand that every front pager with pets produce pictures, now!

    Had a German Shepherd years ago. Got her as a puppy and she needed a bed. Neighbor gave us a cast off soft-sided suitcase. Cut out the side, put an old blanket in it — instant dog bed. As a fully grown, 90+ pound adult she still slept in that suitcase. Half of her hanging out, but she would not sleep anywhere else.

    NateDogg is cool.

    Oh and Orange Julius names a woman to be the head of the House “cleaning up and taking out the trash committee”, brilliant move Julius. Have you any fucking idea how the optics look on that one? You give the only woman a house chair position that is basically the “housekeeping” spot. Brilliant move. Don’t forget to put “having dinner on the table and my slippers and a cocktail ready” in the list of her responsibilities. What an asshole.

    That’s okay, Nate-Dogg, we know how exhausting it must be hunting down your own noms. You take that well deserved snooze. Then tomorrow you can look for your breakfast in bed without that awful commute to the doggy bowl. #smartNateDogg

    It’s an open thread, so I’ll ask: is Freddie deBoer still posting here? I know he got knocked around a few weeks ago, and I haven’t seen anything from him since.

    Oh, and cute dog!

    Charlotte is the most short-haired of our cats, so this is the time of year when she starts to demand that I put a throw over the couch to create a little tent for her to nap in. Or, if I’m sitting on the couch or the easy chair with a throw over my lap, she will crawl under the edge and hang out by my feet where it’s nice and warm.

    What would you think if the Dems proposed a “war repayment tax”?

    While the details of the tax would be open for debate, it would be a surtax that ends once enough revenue is collected to pay the Afghan and Iraq wars.

    There really is nothing like a wet dog nose waking you in the morning (or in my case right now at 2am), I am sleep deprived.

    There sits the Lord Mayor,
    There sit his men.
    There sits the cockle-do,
    There sits the hen.
    There sit the chickies,
    And there they run in –
    Chin chopper, chin chopper, chin chopper, chin!

    I love his beard! I have had 2 dogs with white under their chinchopper, and they were the deep thinkers.

    I am still a little worried about Cole’s chili dogs, however.

    @The Other Bob:

    Ooooh I like that idea, the very thought of cutting taxes while a war was going on was insane. Pity none of the republicans have mentioned that.

    Also, too, I’m going to Disneyland tomorrow with my best friend’s family. It’s supposed to rain (it’s already been raining all day today) but fortunately they’re a “neither ice nor snow nor bitter cold will prevent us from having fun” group, so I think we’ll have a good time anyway. The last time I went with this group, one of the kids had a really nasty cold that turned out to be walking pneumonia (!) but claimed all day to feel much better than he actually did because he really loves Disneyland.

    Cute doggie! :)

    I have to say that I haz a sad with Erick, Son of Erick, announcing today at Redstate that he will not be challenging Saxby Chambliss for his Georgia seat in the Senate. The reason? Erick sez:

    Were I to run for the Senate, it would be a terribly nasty campaign. It’d actually be really awesome, but it’d be really nasty.

    I think he meant awesome for us spectators on the left and not himself. ;)

    Erick finishes the statement quoted above with:

    I have a seven year old, a soon to be four year old, and a wife who does not like being anywhere near a stage. I’m not putting my family through that when the best outcome would mean a sizable pay cut and being away from my kids and wife all the time huddled in a pit of vipers often surrounded by too many who viewed me as a useful instrument to their own advancement.

    Erick thinks others would view him as a useful tool for themselves? I have always thought that consensus on Erick was that he is a useless tool. I had to lol at his stating that one of the reasons for his not running is that if he ran and won the Senate seat then he would be taking, at best, a “sizable pay cut”.

    Spoken like the true Conservative of today; My bank account is more important than honorable service to the people of my state and country.

    Now if there was more money to be made… the answer would still be no. Erick knows that he would get his ass stomped into the ground. He is the problem with the Republican party and the “establishment Republicans” would do everything they could to bury him in the primary.

    Erick is right about one thing though… it would be awesome to watch!

    Bush the younger decided that cutting taxes while two wars were going on was a good idea, he turned a surplus into a deficit while putting the wars onto the invisible credit card (ie off the books), he managed to convince the American people that there was a surplus in the budget while in fact there were huge deficits thanks to the wars. It was quite a PR stunt when you think about it.

    @efgoldman: I understand Republicans suck with women. The English translation would have been: “John Boehner named Candice Miller chair of the House Administration Committee.”

    A rant on how this is an unimportant committee and how this is a token appointment could have nicely followed. “Arglebargle lucifer sezs make me a sammich!” doesn’t really get any of that across. I like to know what I’m supposed to be outraged about.

    I generally go to sleep at 10pm, the puppy wakes me at 2am, (to take her out to potty) the husband then wakes me at 4am (when his alarm goes off) so I get a very fragmented sleep during the night. I just want 8 hours, without interruption, please.
